McDonnell denies contradicting Corbyn as he blames Putin

  • Jeremy Corbyn was interrupted several times as he gave a speech at The Stop The War conference at the TUC centre in London today by people angry that he has not done enough to condemn President Assad and his actions in Syria. The protesters shouted at Mr

The United States and other allies have united behind the U.K. government in blaming Russian Federation for the nerve-agent poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

The growing disquiet came as moderate Labour MPs prepared to try to oust Seumas Milne, Mr Corbyn's head of communications, the Telegraph can disclose.

More than 30 Labour legislators have signed a motion declaring support for Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative government in its view that there is no plausible alternative explanation, other than Russian responsibility, for the attack in the English city of Salisbury.

"But in my years in parliament I have seen clear thinking in an global crisis overwhelmed by emotion and hasty judgments too many times", he said, noting the flawed intelligence used to justify the US-led invasion of Iraq.

But according to the Times , the app also collected the data of those quiz-takers' Facebook friends, without permission. It insists it played an instrumental role Trump's ultimately successful bid for the presidency.

"In my years in Parliament I have seen clear thinking in an worldwide crisis overwhelmed by emotion and hasty judgments too many times", Corbyn said, mentioning British claims before the Iraq War that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.

He then told Robert Peston, "whichever way you look at it (Vladimir Putin) is responsible".

Shadow chancellor John McDonnell said that Mr Corbyn's message had been "misread", and that Labour agreed with Theresa May that Russian Federation was responsible for the attack.

Reacting to Labour divisions over Mr Corbyn's response to the incident, Mr McDonnell said the Labour leader had given a "constructive critique" and others "had misread that".

Many people dismiss Crean for the job that he did at IN , never taking the team further than the Sweet Sixteen IN nine years. That stretch was highlighted by a No. 1 seed in the 2013 NCAA Tournament and a Big Ten Coach of the Year for Crean in 2016.

But in an apparent attempt to shift the party's position, Mr Corbyn's cose allies John McDonnell and Baroness Chakrabarti stressed that Russian Federation is culpable and endorsed the government's reprisals against Moscow.

The Labour leader on Saturday said the Russian authorities "must be held to account on the basis of the evidence and our response must be both decisive and proportionate".

The shadow chancellor said it was important to base judgements on the evidence but added: 'There's a pattern of people being murdered here, therefore it leads you to the conclusion that Putin has questions to answer because this is highly likely this could have been a state execution'.

But Mr McDonnell played down a description of it as an "oligarch's levy" and said the action could be achieved by fulfilling Labour's election pledge to put a levy on properties owned by foreign companies.
